What we believe at Mountainview about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church
The Bible is the inerrant, divinely inspired and preserved Word of God. Both Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, and our inspiration and complete authority. We accept the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
There is one God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is Creator of all things both visible and invisible. He is infinitely perfect and eternally existing.
Genesis 1:1-2; Matthew 28:18-20; John 1:1-2, 8:58; 1 Corinthians 6:11, 8:6; Acts 2:32-33
Jesus Christ is God's one and only Son. He came to reveal God and to redeem man. He died on the cross for the atonement of our sins, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will return again.
Romans 4:24, 8:34; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11
The Holy Spirit instructs, comforts, and empowers believers for godly living and service.
John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13, Ephesians 1:13-14
Salvation, the forgiveness of sin, is only by God's grace, through the blood of Jesus Christ. One receives grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting (turning away) of sin, confessing allegiance to Christ, and being baptized (immersed) in water into Christ.
Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7; Romans 5:1-2; Acts 3:19, 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; Philippians 2:11; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21
The true church is made up of all people who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been made a new creation. We are united together in the Body of Christ as brothers and sisters, giving our allegiance and service to Jesus Christ, our Head.
Matthew 16:13-18; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-20
